Sellwood Library House

This turn-of-the-century original Sellwood Library was transformed into an amazing Portland home for it's New York transplants. Custom woodworking and cabinetry transformed this room into a warm living space. An amazing kitchen with a rolling ladder to access high cabinets as well as a stunning 10 by 4 foot carrara marble topped island! Leaded glass windows and dark stained wood floors add to the eclectic mix of original craftsmanship and modern influences.

I love the simplicity of the layout.... - Not to mention the spectacular design and decorating. Where is the main entry? Is it a side door? If so, what is the street view of the exterior?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Houzz Tour: An Old Oregon Library Starts a New Chapter
This rolling library ladder is a functional — and appropriate — addition to the kitchen, providing access to cabinets that kiss the 11-foot ceilings. The wavy glass on the cabinet doors is new but has a vintage look. The bin pull hardware is typical of the building's era.
Laura Gaskill added this to Holiday Party Prep: Ready Your Supplies
2. Find your entertaining supplies. Once you know what you'll be preparing for, it's time to take stock of what you have, from serving dishes to coffee cups. How many of each thing? Do you have enough for the crowd you are expecting? Start a list of items you may want to pick up to fill in the gaps.
Karen Egly-Thompson added this to Aim High: What to Know About Adding a Library Ladder
Important ConsiderationsBefore proceeding with a library ladder project, make sure your space meets these four requirements.1. Determine if there’s adequate support at the location you want to install the rail. If not, you’ll need to add it. Keep in mind that the rail needs to support not only itself and the ladder, but the person standing on it and the torque created by that person’s movement. Klint Peacock of Bartels Doors, who represents MWE brand ladders, says that if you’re mounting onto wood cabinetry, as shown here, you don’t need additional support because the unit itself is already solid wood.However, if the rail is to be mounted directly to a wall surface, extra support will likely need to be built into the wall if it’s not concrete. Peacock explains that when someone is sliding the ladder or even climbing on it, there is no force pulling down on the rail or the mounts (the floor receives the force). The problem arises with the force created when the ladder is pulled outward. While the ladder mounts are extremely load bearing, they need to be mounted to something solid.
